This morning didn’t go as expected. I had a 5 or 6 mile run on the books for my Sunday, and when I got out of bed all I could feel was pain. My back. My legs. My ribcage (especially). I think it’s from poor sleeping positions and the two-hour hip hop class I took yesterday. I also didn’t drink much water after my class or fuel my body properly. Not good. So, rather than get frustrated and angry that I can’t do it all, I’ve decided to have a leisurely Sunday morning. Coffee, some oatmeal, a little laundry on the side, and let’s not forget a little meal preparation.
I actually created this dish last Sunday. But I’ve had it in my dashboard to share. It’s recipes like these that make Pinterest worth perusing. I’m not an addict, no. But I do enjoy the site’s functionality and my ability to easier find recipes, arts and crafts, and fashion.
Last Sunday I had quite a bit of quinoa in my house, and I’ve been enjoying its protein-staying power. I did a quick search on Pinterest and found a slew of tasty recipes. I substituted peas for corn (what I had on hand) and came up with this somewhat spicy meal. I ate this about three times last week for lunch.
I cherish my Sundays. I am never lazy on a Sunday, but my tasks are slower. I work here and there, not just to complete something. Throughout the week I often feel so rushed by my schedule that cooking, cleaning, or organizing gets done in a flash. Usually this means it’s not done well. It takes a little bit of patience. So today, I’m not trying to set a personal record. I’m just trying to survive the marathon.
Hope you enjoy your perhaps lazy or productive or fulfilling Sunday.
